After researching into portfolios by professionals in the industry and into some information about what to do and not to do with an online portfolio, I started searching for a hosting website. I had considered having a website made for me but with the time and pricing I thought it would be best just to go for a hosting website for now.
As discussed and seen in a previous post it is deemed as more professional to have your own domain name so I had to look for hosting websites that allowed this. I looked at quite a few sites like squarespace and Behance looking at layouts and pricing but ended up going with carbonmade. I went with carbonmade because it seemed quite easy to use and I liked the simplistic layouts. And at $12 or about £8 sterling to have your own domain, a logo, lots of pages for projects and high quality video it isn’t too bad.
My portfolio: http://ryanglover3d.co.uk/
I bought the url for about £5 for the year. My portfolio obviously isn’t finished yet and still needs a lot of work but it’s a start.
